  • How long is each piano lesson?
    At Musicamaestro, we tailor piano lessons to the individual student based on age, concentration, skill level, and goals. We recommend a minimum of 30 minutes for maximum effectiveness and prioritize making learning enjoyable, especially for children. Our experienced teachers guide and support our students to meet their unique needs and goals, leaving them feeling inspired and fulfilled. During exam periods, we may recommend increasing lesson frequency and length for better results.
  • How do I schedule a lesson?
    After the phone consultation, if we determine that Musica Maestro is the right fit for you and that you are the perfect student for us, we will schedule your first full lesson over the phone. You will be given your teacher's contact information based on your preferences, and on the agreed-upon day and time, your teacher will arrive at your door for your first lesson. In the following weeks, your lessons will be scheduled directly with your teacher. While we offer flexibility in scheduling, we always recommend setting a regular time on the same day each week to establish a routine and achieve the best results. This is similar to a school schedule that remains consistent each day and does not change.
  • How often are piano lessons offered?
    When it comes to piano lessons, consistency is key. For children, we recommend at least one lesson per week to ensure steady progress, while for adults, we recommend one lesson every two weeks. In our experience, students who take at least 39 lessons within a 12-month period tend to achieve the best results. Our lesson schedules are flexible and can be adjusted to meet the needs of each student. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced player, we'll work with you to create a lesson plan that fits your schedule and goals.
  • Do you offer online piano lessons?
    Yes, we do offer online lessons at Musica Maestro. This has been especially important during the recent pandemic, and we have helped our students transition to online learning seamlessly. We have even held end-of-year concerts online for our students. In addition, many of our students who have relocated abroad have continued to study with us by connecting online. Our online lessons are held in real-time, using video conferencing software that allows our students to receive the same quality instruction they would receive in person. We are proud to offer the flexibility of both in-person and online lessons to our students.
  • Do I need to own a piano before starting lessons?
    At Musica Maestro, we understand that not everyone has access to a piano at home. That's why we offer piano lessons on both pianos and keyboards. We do not require you to own a piano before starting lessons. If you don't have a piano or keyboard we also have a rental program available. This allows you to have an instrument to practice on while you take lessons with us. If you decide to purchase a piano in the future, we have exclusive partnerships with some piano dealers and will be happy to provide advice to help you choose the right one for you.
  • What type of music is covered in the lessons?
    At Musica Maestro, our teachers have a broad range of skills and expertise across various genres. We take pride in matching our students with the teacher who has the most relevant experience and knowledge in the specific genre they are interested in. This means anything from Baroque composers like Bach and Scarlatti to classical greats such as Mozart and Beethoven, and modern pop and rock artists like Bruno Mars and Queen, we cover it all. We also offer instruction in jazz standards, contemporary composers like Ligeti and Stockhausen, and many other styles. Our personalized approach ensures that every student receives a tailored lesson plan that meets their unique needs and interests.
  • What are the benefits of private piano lessons compared to attending a music center?
    Private piano lessons offer several benefits compared to attending a music center. Some of these benefits include: 1. Personalized attention and customized lesson plans to suit each student's unique needs and goals. Our instructors work one-on-one with students to identify their strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement, providing tailored feedback and guidance. 2. Learning at your own pace, ensuring that you fully understand and master each concept before moving on. This individualized approach can lead to faster progress, better results, and a more enjoyable learning experience. 3. Flexibility and accommodating to busy schedules, allowing students to fit music lessons into their lives more easily. 4. Avoiding the hassle of commuting to a music center, saving time and money. 5. Classes at preferred times in the afternoon or early evening, so students can make the most of their day. 6. Providing a complimentary piano or keyboard for a month if you don't have one. 7. Preparing for music exams with our experienced and qualified instructors. 8. Overall, private piano lessons offer a personalized and flexible approach to learning music, which can lead to better results and a more enjoyable learning experience.
  • Is there a minimum commitment period for piano lessons?
    Our piano lessons run by term of 12 weeks, and we recommend committing for at least 3 terms in the space of 1 year to achieve optimal results. While there is no strict minimum commitment period, we encourage our students to commit to regular lessons over an extended period of time to ensure consistent progress and improvement. We have found that students who take lessons consistently over a longer period of time tend to have better outcomes and a more enjoyable learning experience.
  • Can I change the duration of the class or the number of classes per week?

  • How can I encourage my child to practice without directly asking them to do so?
    It's understandable that parents may have to remind their children to practice during the first few months of lessons. The most effective way to build good practice habits is to dedicate at least 5 minutes of practice time every day. It's important to build the habit of practicing regularly rather than for extended periods of time. Consistency is key when building skills and a passion for a music instrument. In fact, 5 minutes of practice per day is better than 1 hour once a week. Consistency and repetition are the secret to building skills and a love for music. Encourage your child to practice regularly, and make it a fun and enjoyable activity for them. As they progress and begin to see results, they'll likely develop a greater interest in practicing and playing the piano.
  • How do the most successful students practice according to Musica Maestro's experience of providing 30k+ classes?
    Our top-performing students at Musica Maestro have demonstrated consistent practice habits and dedication to their musical studies. They have never missed more than one week of sessions per term over the past three years, and they make it a priority to practice daily at a fixed time. Developing a daily practice routine is essential to achieving progress and mastery in playing the piano. At Musica Maestro, we encourage all of our students to establish a consistent practice schedule and to stick to it as much as possible.
  • Do organize any students' recitals?
    Certainly! At Musica Maestro, we believe in the importance of performance and provide opportunities for all our students to perform in front of an audience.
